Recology, a waste-management company based in San Francisco, is working with the city of San Francisco to help it become the country’s first zero-waste city – in a scant seven years.
If they’re successful, all of San Franciscans’ discarded items will be recycled, reused or composted, and its need for landfills will become obsolete.
Tip: Don’t ask what it will cost.
Prediction: They’ll do what they can until they run out of other people’s money, then reclassify garbage as something else, declare victory, and go home.
